Abstract

The DOE-MACSYMA program is a port to MIT Common-LISP (VAX-NIL under VMS) of the original MIT MACSYMA program written in MACLISP. The issues regarding the porting and maintenance of such software, the hardware performance, and the experience of porting to other Common-LISP implementations (such as LMI Common-LISP for the LMI LAMBDA and the Texas Instruments EXPLORER) are discussed. Work on the user-contributed SHARE Library, consisting of reorganization and standardization are described, so that these programs may be fully independent of operating system differences.
